November 7, 2012 (Newswire.com) - Millions of people suffer from cold and flu symptoms during the winter months each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Treating the air that you breathe will in effect treat your symptoms, and will contribute to better indoor air quality and better living.
During the height of cold and flu season, anywhere from 5 to 20 percent of people in the United States will contract the flu, with more than 200,000 hospitalised due to seasonal flu complications each year, according to the CDC.
